Yosemite

We spent yesterday at Yosemite. Even though it's less than 2 hours from our house, we haven't been there since the Things were born. That's silly.

They're doing some road construction in the park, which meant at one point we had to stop the car and wait for nearly half hour. It wasn't torture, though, because this is what it looked like where we stopped:




The Things managed to amuse themselves for 30 minutes. Then we had a picnic on this beautiful beach, and Thing 1 attempted to throw every last rock back into the Merced River. Meanwhile, T2 practiced the art of log walking:

Later, T2 made John Muir's acquaintance:



And then we walked up to the bottom of Yosemite Falls.

It's a great time of year to visit. Highs temps were in the 60's, it wasn't too ungodly crowded, the falls are beautiful, and the trees are just leafing out.
